will cost american lives. here is reaction, fox contributor, karl rove. welcome back. >>> thank you. >> sean: you got the senate came out and president came out today. did you get the sense he seemed to resent he was upstaged yesterday and bragging the success that he has had at the border? >> but the gang of eight did change the president's tone. i do want to say two things positive about the president. one was that the reports were that he was going to come out and go on the attack. that he was going to have a very negative tone. obviously what happened yesterday caused him to change the tone. he was complimentary of the gang of eight. he could have done a lot of damage by resolving this issue had he treated his political ammunition for partisan attack. the second thing was, i was interested -- he followed up on what the gang of eight said and implied that people who are here illegally, once they surface will not be eligible for obamacare and the suggestion was perhaps other social services. this is an important thing that the gang of eight agreed on, if you are here illegally and you surf

. immigration reform, does it really have a chance this time? we will get answers from karl rove and joe troop. >> a politically polarized washington is making noise about a bipartisan effort to fix the nation's immigration system. we are going to talk about that tonight with political analyst karl rove and joe troupe. immigration ended on the skap heap back in 2007. what that i cans it this time around any different? can this actually get done? >> i think it can get done this time. there are a lot of pitfalls but there are a bunch of differences, too. democrats believe the nation is ready for this. polls are showing 77 percent of americans want some kind of immigration reform big immigration reform package out there. the other thing that is different we have someone like marco rubio who has the ability hopefully to pull both traditional republicans as well as tea party republicans together on this issue. >> karl does rubio from the power to unite the repub dlican party? it is fractured and put an issue like immigration with pitfalls it may be tough to pull it together. >> it does. it will be.

is a civil war. >> i feel like we should say oh, oh, oh. >> okay, then. >> karl rove as the reformer. >> you're talking about karl rove? >> he built this thing. >> karl is trying to unwind what he wound. >> trying to prevent another meltdown. >> i think there will be bruising changes. >> they have a real problem. >> it is time for a new party to talk like adults, we have to stop being stupid party. >> we have the obligation to try. >> when the president heads to minneapolis. >> progress is possible. >> to talk about gun violence. >> universal background checks are universally supported. >> it is a fraud to call it universal. it will never be universal. law abiding people don't want that. >> the nra is now revealed as an insane organization. and that matters quite a lot. >> the senate is poised to take action on gun violence. >> i didn't vote on the assault weapons last time, it didn't make sense. >> this is an emergency, let's knock off the washington baloney. >> if there is anything we can do, we have an obligation to try. >> i'm ezra klein in for lawrence o'donnell tonight. richard luger w

it become she was just appearing on like greta. so they kept karl rove. >> yes. karl -- see they know that karl rove is going to be a valuables a set in 2014 2016 even if he got it wrong this time around -- >> bill: even if he attacked his own network. >> yes, he is still a relevant political player. sarah palin is not a relevant political player and karl rove is. >> bill: he also know that sarah palin -- when she made the decision that she was not going to run for president in 2012 she did not announce it on fox news. >> yeah. >> bill: why did they hire dennis casinich. >> that's a great question. obviously fox news is conservative, but the number one goal is programming, and roger ailes wants to have people on there to yell at each other. they probably made him an offer that was really good and now they have somebody on there that they can yell at. >> bill: i wonder if they'll give him the opportunity to express his opinions. >> yeah. >> bill: we saw each other last night at the launch of the new, new republic. i don't know how long the new republic has been a

party as we look ahead. >> where does karl rove and his new super pac fit into that? >> did you ever think republicans would call him a rhino, republican in name only. here you go. i've always thought of karl rove as a conservative. what's going on is his pac has said, you know what, we are tired of someone associated with his pac said to me, quote, the novelty of losing elections has worn off, and what they've decided to do is to start putting their money in primaries. they want to vet republican primary candidates so that by the time they get to the general election they believe they have qualified vetted candidates who can actually win. conservatives are saying, this is not what you should do. you need to let the process work itself out and american crossroads is saying, don't sacrifice ideological purity here. you can't worship at that. what you really need to do is win elections and that's what they say their political action committee is about. so there is a fight brewing on that front as well. >> they're trying to learn some lessons from what happened in missouri and indiana i

as the washington republican elite, folks like karl rove, efforts like what we see spelled out in "the new york times" today, to control them, to corral them to, steal them away from candidates they may like, towards candidates who they think the establishment deems to be more elective. i've heard some republicans talking about the potential backlash it to, where there would be nothing that would fire up tea party activists on the base more than thinking that karl rove is trying to big foot them in telling them who to elect in primaries and that may have the opposite effect of riling up strong sentiment on the conservative base and encouraging tea party candidates, potentially encouraging conservative donors to put in money to oppose what karl rove is trying to do. >> the fringiness. the fringies being upset by the establishment. really quick here, lori montgomery. boston globe reporting there might be a romney that gets in this senate race. do you think that's realistic or silliness? >> you know, i can't imagine that the romneys -- >> your tone says it all. >> are up for another one of these.

. >>> karl rove has a new super pac but it's not being used against democrats. check out the headline. rove declares war on tea party. after embarrassing senate defeats in missouri and indiana, rove's american crossroads has created the conservative victory project. that's a group the "new york times" says will back candidates and incumbents from challenges by far right conservatives and the tea party. let's bring in former democratic congressman from pennsylvania, retired navy admiral joe sestak and we're also joined by republican strategist and former santorum senior strategist, john brabender. here's what steven law, president of american crossroads said. quote, there is a broad concern about having blown a significant number of races because the wrong candidates were selected. we don't view ourselves as being in the incumbent protection business but we want to pick the most conservative candidate who can win, end quote. is he right there, or is this an act of war like breitbart says in the headline? >> i don't think it's an act of war. what they're saying is we can no longer just pick a

to say we've had enough of that. >> myrrh you can do and akin. last night karl rove who is now an umpire, he agreed and said republicans must have more than an anti-obama message. let's listen to the oracle, the architect. >> i think he's right. he was talking about todd akin of missouri and richard mourdock of indiana and their terrible comments on abortion. the republican can't be in mindless opposition to president obama. it has to offer a vision of the future that is attractive and compelling for americans to associate with. >> the problems is that the vision jindal and rove are talking about hasn't changed. only their messaging has. while jindal talks a good game paul krugman pointed out yesterday jindal is proposing eliminating louisiana's incomes tax which is paid primarily by the wealthy and replace it with a sales tax designed to hit the middle class and working class. you're doing the same old hoover stuff, tax the people that get hit the hardest by economic recession and exempt the top penal who make incomes, big incomes. >> but that's not necessarily been born out in states l

in that inaugural address. you know, nobody has used the word yet, partly because i think karl rove fouled it after 2004 when he proclaimed there was a political realignment in this country. but i think there has been a political realignment. it's an obama realignment. and as i've heard you say before, i think this is now a center left country. the president's right on all these issues. republicans are kind of having a nervous breakdown, don't know what to do about it, so they're playing these kinds of games. >> well, it is our new theme here on the program. yes, we do say let's get to work. but let's call it what it is. this is a center left country. the issues are very progressive that people are polling very strongly in favor of. and another theme out of the republican party is victimization. i mean, you've got boehner and you got ryan and you got limbaugh. all seem to think that president obama is out to just destroy the gop. what a weak presentation of where they are, i would say. >> well, first of all, it would be impossible to victimize rush limbaugh. he is the great -- he is the great guy w
